Gates Corporation, a global diversified manufacturer of industrial, automotive, and heavy-duty products, announces its “Be System Smart Sweepstakes” promotion starting today through Aug. 15, 2016. The sweepstakes gives auto care professionals a chance to test their general automotive knowledge as well as remind them of the importance of system-based automotive repair and replacement in order to be entered for a chance to win prizes. The promotion will feature Sarah Burgess, the Gates sponsored BMI Racing driver, who races in the Pro Lite Truck class of the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series (LOORRS).
Auto care professionals may enter the sweepstakes via the Gates Auto Facebook page or at Gates.com. Participants will be asked to complete the “Be System Smart Sweepstakes” quiz and afterwards will be entered for the chance to win prizes such as Oakley sunglasses, a Rockwell watch and VP Racing Gear, as well as Gates branded merchandise.
As part of the promotion, Burgess will be touting Gates “Be System Smart” message, which encourages the Car Care Council’s recommendation to inspect the serpentine, cooling and timing systems at 60,000 miles and replace worn components at 90,000 miles or as advised by the manufacturer. In addition, Burgess will promote the sweepstakes via social media channels with a series of videos to build excitement for the initiative.
“This sweepstakes gives us a chance to connect in a meaningful way with auto care professionals about system-based automotive repair and replacement,” said Todd Hack, Vice President Automotive Aftermarket at Gates Corporation. “We are thrilled to partner with Sarah Burgess to help us bring our Be System Smart message home to this important audience.”
